, the driving passion for mr. boehner in these fiscal debates is his conviction that trillion deficits are sapping the country of its energy and prosperity. trillion deficits, his driving passion. everybody loves john boehner's passion. but this is supposedly what he feels so passionate about. this is a chart of the country's budget deficit levels every year. red bars are president bush's deficits from 2008 and 2009. blue bars are president obama's deficits. those really big bars are when the whole world economy crashed, including ours. remember that? you notice how the deficit gets smaller when the bars are blue over time? see how they're getting shorter as you go to the right? today the congressional budget office released their deficit projection for 2013. so for this upcoming year, the nonpartisan cbo. according to them under president obama the deficit is slated to continue to shrink, as it has been under president obama. but the supposedly gigantic growth of those deficits is why congressional republicans are >>> in march 2007, some of the fine folks at morgan stanley were brains
will make what white house officials are describing as a progressive case for deficit reduction, that that still needs to be done even entitlement reform, and the progressive case is if these programs continue to grow out of control, they crowd out other initiatives, other priorities that are, you know, that progressives hold dear on education, on infrastructure, you know, social programs. >> well, one of the other things we'll see, congressman ellison, you and several other members of the democratic caucus will bring guests into the chamber victims of gun violence. >> that's right. as a matter of fact, young man named semi rahiman, who lost his father in a tragic event in minneapolis will join me and jim langua languagevin and our colleagues, about 30 members who are inviting victims of gun violence to be in the gallery looking forward to them being with us because they -- they're witnesses to the need for sane, sensible reform in the area of gun violence prevention. >> congressman cole, what's your sense of what can get done on that this year? gabby giffords will also be in th
" is next. host: the federal deficit is expected to dip below one trillion. the news comes as republicans and democrats face a march 1 deadline to avoid billions in across-the-board spending cuts. the pentagon announced it will offer benefits to same-sex couples. in the senate is wrapping up work on the violence against women act. and the house will vote on a bill requiring the president to offer a plan to balance the federal budget in 10 years. good morning. we begin with your take on the leaked white paper from the white house just fine drone strikes on u.s. citizens overseas. nbc news reported on the memo monday night and it has gotten lots of reaction in washington. what are your thoughts? call -- we want to get your thoughts on social media as well on twitter or facebook. or send us an e-mail. we will get your thoughts in a moment. first, josh gerstein is joining us on the phone. here's your headline -- what was this memo? guest: this is a white paper that looks like it was derived from some confidential legal opinions that the opinions -- opinions that the justice department wrote t
will be gradual. and on the downside we have thrown a lot of roadblocks in its path. we have a debt and deficit situation which in the long term are unsustainable, and we're doing absolutely nothing to correct that. nothing. i know cbo's forecast was that we would see modest improvement in the jet crashing into debt-to-gdp ratio the next two years but i don't believe the. i don't like their forecast. i do with 4% growth is going to venture lies with the 0% increase in the interest rate. just don't see it happening. if you get when you're going to get the other one taking up and that will be very, very difficult to maintain a stable or declining debt-to-gdp ratio. but even cbo has a debt-to-gdp ratio picking up at the end of the 10 year horizon. so we have to stabilize the debt. we haven't fixed the debt. and, in fact, we spread the crisis out so that we really won't go a month without one. we have the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. nothing was done in the later part of the year. and then in the 11th hour, actually it wasn't the 11th hour. it was about the 15th hour, two and half hours aft
administration is already more than half wait toward its goal of deficit reduction with the president calling for more tax hikes to finish the job. it. >> over last few years democrats and republicans have come together and cut our deficit by more than two and a half trillion dollars to a balanced mix of spending cuts and higher tax rates for the wealthiest americans. that's more than halfway toward the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties say we need to stabilize our debt. i believe we can finish the job to see where we started it, with a balanced mix of more spending cuts and more tax reform. lou: the obama -- obama propaganda machine insists jobs have never fallen below priority number one despite the president's preoccupation with gun control, comprehensive immigration reform. ed henry has our report. >> well president obama only use the word jobs twice in his inaugural address, his team is now building tuesday's big speech as it continues a major push on the economy. >> you will hear the president's state of the union l1 from him for hi
there is a better way to reduce the deficit. he's calling for cuts and reforms that will put us on the path to balancing the budget within ten years. you can see it live. we're keeping an eye on the white house. we'll bring you the president's remarks as soon as he gets to the podium. >>> we are tracking a developing story on new details from the justice department that seem to lay out its case for killing u.s. citizens if they're determined to be a terror risk. the memo first reported by nbc addresses issues raised after recent drone strikes including the one that killed american born al-qaeda leader, but now a bi-partisan group of senators says it wants to know why they were never briefed on what is apparently new presidential authority. chief intelligence correspondent kathryn her image is live with more. >> reporter: this letter signed by eight democrats and three republicans urges mr. obama to produce a highly classified memo that authorized the targeted killing program so that, quote, congress and the public can decide whether the president's power to deliberately kill american citize
budget $850 billion will be the deficit and we looked at the charts. people will argue, probably the man here, that it's going to be down in the long term because of increased revenues, economic growth, sequester, higher taxes. but kimberly, if you look to 2013, it shoots back up. how can the president hold a press conference when he talks about cuts using the word smaller. >> there's so much shrinkage. the problem is the middle class is the working poor. that's what's the norm. people are so used to it now they don't realize it should be fixed. we could focus on cutting back on spending, thinking about how to stimulate jobs and the economy. we're so used to the stagnation, it's become acceptable and people aren't critical enough to say there's a better way to do this and a smarter financial way to make sense. >> is this the new normal? before we get to that, the white house scrambled after the cbo announcement to cobble the press conference together. what did you think? >> one of the things, if ear going to call press conferences, he has to take questions. if he goes to the white house
with smarter spending reductions to bring down the deficit. we can do it in a gradual way so that there is less of an impact. these deductions that certain folks can take advantage of, the average person cannot. not everyone has access to cayman island accounts, the average person does not have access to carry interest income, where they wind up paying a much lower rate on the billions that they earned. we want to make sure that the whole system is fair and transparent and that we are reducing our deficit in a way that does not hamper growth and reduce the kinds of strategies that we need in order to make sure that we are creating a strong middle-class. host: jim from south carolina, on the republican line, good morning. caller: how are you? host: well, thank you. caller: you keep mentioning and hearing people talking about pensions, but pensions are just invested the same way that 401k is. stocks and bonds. people with pensions lost money as well. i heard cases where people were not going to get as much money. if someone is manages their 401k, i do not know, it needs to be managed properly and
to create jobs, which is deficit spending and increased taxes to finance more domestic spending on his priorities. this is what he's been talking about, really, since he started running for reelection, which is to say the day off he got elected the first time. this is his chance, this is his thing, this is what he likes to talk about. i'm not surprised to hear him make this the focus of the state of the union, but i will say this, the consequence of him going on such an ideological, liberal sort of power point throughout his inaugural address, the position of having to go back and remind people this really is about jobs, if we don't like having 7.9% unemployment and don't like these things and the reports that we talk about global warming and marriage, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. >> what does it actually do for him or his party. the thing is as a second term president not much he can do, pick a couple of top priorities and seems he's doing that with immigration reform and gun control and some climate change issues. so is this push for jobs because he made a push before the electio
a year. the deficit next year according to the congressional budget service $845 billion. they have $3 billion in tax increases against a $845 billion deficit. the point that you make is a good one. the president and he drove this thing in august of 2012. h20122011. he wanted the sequester. read woodward's book in page 226 or some where in this and the deep cuts in defense thinking at the time that would put enough pressure on republicans to get them to agree to higher tax. here we are he wants this thing delayed yet again but to be fair there has been a solution put forward. the house of representatives has not once but twice passed legislation that would replace the sequester and the deep defense cuts which do cause damage to our national security and our readiness with other cuts also in the budget. and that is something that has been rejected by the democrats here on capitol hill and by the president. >> greta: what i don't get is the gal to come out and ask for mother delay. i can't delay showing up for my job and neither canmy american. we can't keep asking for the delays and he
and deficit. he doesn't share the commitment with us on that. so, ok, we're going to keep at it on that. but at the same time, you've got so many millions of americans who feel that they have become an afterthought. my purpose in saying this is we have conservative principles that actually can work for their life again. and that's what we're going to be about promoting. >> before you go, i want to ask you about the debate over drones. it's a key part of the president's national security policy. why hasn't congress passed any additional legislation to review drone policy, to really understand where there ought to be checks and balances in the time that's passed since the original authorization post-9/11 that gave the president the authority to have a kill list, as the president works off of, for drones? >> you know, i'm glad to hear that the administration has released the memo that is under discussion to our intelligence committees in both the house and the senate. we're going to be about oversight and getting into examining that memo. but, you know, let's just say -- suffice it is to s
appropriations committee yesterday we learned that we're actually making progress in getting the budget deficit to shrink below a trillion dollars. which you have saluted as good news. >> you know, a lot of people forget what president bill clinton did. if we would have just continued what he did back when he left office, we would have been -- we had a surplus. we wouldn't be in this situation. but bottom line is the deficit is i believe it is the lowest in some time in 2008. we ought to be celebrating we're actually moving the target down. it is moving down instead of going up. but nobody has picked up. i'm glad she picked that up. bill and victoria, thank you for telling the listeners that president obama and all of us working together, we're actually bringing down the deficit. >> bill: the deficit's going down and the market the dow is going up. so there is some good economic news that you never hear about except here on the "full court press." congressman henry cuellar great to have you with us this morning. >> thank you, bill and victoria. >> bill: we'll be back to continue our conversatio
. let's reform the defense budget and look at the largest drivers of our deficit in mandate spending programs those on the left end of the spectrum don't want to cut. >>brian: they took gates cuts and are going try to up them by $500 billion. leon panetta takes over from them. has the same fear. here's what he said yesterday on "meet the press." >> we've got a plan for that possibility because there are so many members saying we're going to let it take place, but i have to tell you it is irresponsible for it to happen. i mean, why -- why in god's name would members of congress elected by the american people take a step that would badly damage our national defense, but more importantly undermine the support for our men and women in uniform? why would you do that? >>brian: that is inaccurate. it is the president who proposed these sequester cuts. this isn't congress doing that. and republican fear about these cuts, would you say that's accurate? >> i would say it's accurate. there is a growing resignation to them on the hill for some reason. i was there two weeks ago. everyone seems re
to say. our deficit is a big problem. >> what about our taxation system? when i pick up my bible, you know he what i see? i see the fairest individual in the universe, god, and he's given us a system. it's called time. >> well, he didn't stop there because carson is the head of neurosurgery at johns hopkins. listen to his take on obama care. >> he's my solution. when the person is born, give them a birth certificate, an electronic card and a health savings account. when you die, you can pass it on to your family members so that when you're 85 years old and you've got six diseases you're not trying to spend up everything. you're happy to pass it on and there's nobody talking about death panels. >> well, rush limbaugh said republicans could learn a thing or two from the good doctor. >> he sets out a position based on our principles of individual responsibility and free market that is a logical solution that makes total sense to everybody who hears it. >> this man said it while obama's sitting there. this is the kind of thing the republican party should have been saying for the past four
are afraid to actually talk about what they want to say. our deficit is a big problem. what about our taxation system? when i pick up my bible, you know what i see? i see the fairest individual in the universe, god, he's given us this system. hoosr it's called time. >> he didn't stop there. carson is the head of neurosurgery at johns hopkins. listen to obamacare. >> here's my solution. when a person is born, give them a birth certificate, an electronic medical record and a health savings account, to which money can be contributed pre-tax from the time you are born to the time you die. when you die, you can pass it on to your family members so that when you are 85 years old, you got 6 diseases, you are not trying to spend up everything, you are happy to pass it on and nobody's talking about death panels. >> rush limbaugh says the republicans could learn a thing or two. >> the guy comes along in 43 seconds and sets out a position, based on our principles of individual responsibility and free market that is a logical solution that makes total sense to everybody who hears it. this man sai
are you thinking? this winter in storm. everybody at a deficit. this will be the first big storm we have had in a very long time big zacket. two storms now. this is where all the moisture is out across the south. cold air is with this system across the northern plains. both of these storms are going to continue to move up here. they will get together. we call it phasing the streams insteps city once it gets over water. that will happen areas across the northern hazell of jersey. philadelphia and d.c. nor of an new england storm. blizzard watches for boston and proched. very strong went with this. areas of new england definitely getting a monster storm boston and portland inland two feet 32-degree line make a difference for new york. going to be over 1 to 3 inches. maybe 3 to 6 if it goes farther toward the south. shep? >> shepard: not too bad for us. heavy fog may be to blame for a gruesome scene this morning after a series of crashes involving some 27 cars and trucks. officials say it happened on interstate 16 west of savannah, georgia likely because vanget as many as seven tractor trai
references to the trust deficit that has at times existed between this committee and the cia. if i'm confirmed, the address the deficit between the committee and the cia would be wholly unacceptable and i would make it my goal on day one of my tenure and every day thereafter to strengthen the trust between us. i have a reputation for speaking my mind, and at times doing so in a direct manner, which some attribute to my new jersey routes. i would like to think that my candor would reassure you that you'll get straight answers from me, maybe not always those you will like, but you will get answers and they will reflect my honest views. that is the commitment i made to you. i would like to finish by saying a few words about the importance of taking care of the women and men who serve in the cia. because the of the secretiveness that the intelligence work requires, few americans will ever know the making sacrifices that these professionals and their families make every day. many have risked their lives and at times have given their lives to keep our country states. if confirmed, i woul
deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. >> yes, we can. [ laughter ] >> we can. >> john: now, that is romance. before we go tonight. one more look at the radar on the scene from boston as the huge storm is getting ready to wrap you up. expected to dump as much as 3-foot
away. right? >> right. >> but republicans got to the brink and caved on the deficit ceiling. they got to the brink and they caved on sequester the first round. now, sequester comes back and still with the budget. and and they are saying, no, no, no. they are saying again that we are never going to agree with this unless we get major, major spending cuts and social security and welfare but can we believe him anymore? i mean it looks to me at the same time like they will get to the brink again and realize, no, no, no. we can't do this. if we look at recent history, that would be the course. what's fascinating is the republicans see this as the major bargaining chip to get their desired spending cuts but if we remember from their campaign last fall we saw mitt romney and paul rind on trying to avert the sequester saying this would be a really bad thing, you know, especially for defense. now, we kind of see a reverse here john boehner has said that he does not support a delay which the president wants, which the president outlined last week. so t
